The Northern Echo
October 2016

Marking the start of Tenebrae’s 15th anniversary concert season, their latest recording unites well and lesser known part songs from the British Isles in a collection exploring works by composers ranging from Vaughan Williams, Stanford, Bridge, Elgar to Jonathan Harvey, Judith Bingham and Bob Chilcott. The album, directed by Nigel Short, also marks Shakespeare’s anniversary year, with many of these compositions using the Bard’s texts. Highly recommended.
